With our first look at Captain America: The First Avenger provided by last night’s Super Bowl teaser trailer, my excitement for this movie officially jumped up to 11.

The trailer, while short, displayed everything I could have wanted from this first look – Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) are a thin and scrawny boy, the Super Soldier project, the reveal of Captain America, lots of battle scenes, the friggin SHIELD and more.

In case you missed it, there were a few goodies revealed in the trailer that I bet you didn’t see, such as the reveal of the bad guy known as The Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving, and some shots of Cap’s unit called the Howling Commandos (including Dum Dum Dugan played by the always great Neal McDonough.) Click below the jump for some ner high resolution screen caps of the trailer, as well as glimpses from the inside of recent issue of Empire magazine.
